My guess would have been somewhere in Asia, so I was close.

Of course, that still doesn't answer the question of which came first, the chicken curry or the egg curry?  ;)

I would imagine the chicken curry. No, but wait, where did the chicken curry hatch from. Right. Wait, who laid the egg curry? Aargh!

In reality, there were several chickens in Redwall. What else could the braveless vermin who try to linger at the back of the attack line be ;D?

Cowardly custards? Yellow-belly yokels?  ;)

The ones at the back are usually the lazy leaders.  :(

Hmm... that's a tough question to answer.

This is rather odd. There are actually two characters named after chickens.

Chickenhound, as mentioned before, and the rat Henbit from The Long Patrol. How did he manage to get bitten by something that does not exist?

 In the Redwall Universe, Chickenhound and Henbit are just names; they don't necessarily mean anything. It's worth noting that Redwall was Brian Jacques' first book, so he hadn't finished establishing the lore.

^ In regards to Henbit the name might have just been coincidental. He did Fleabit, so maybe he just thought that Henbit sounded like a good vermin name and kept it.

This is actually a very timely topic for me, because I was thinking about all those amazing dishes Mr. Jacques describes in the feast scenes. While we've debated (and concluded) that the few mentions of milk in the Redwall universe are either out-of-canon or are derived from a plant resource, like milkweed or dandelion sap. But what about eggs? Making baked goods is ridiculously hard without eggs. They are literally not fluffy in the least, and I speak as one who forgot to put eggs in a batch of blueberry muffins one time.

So maybe there are chickens? Do you think the woodlanders are collecting eggs from the birds of the forest? The Sparra would have NONE of that, I'm certain. ;D

Well, I know that you can leave eggs out of a recipe if you add in extra liquid.  I never thought the fluffiness of baked goods is dependent upon the eggs...

As a vegan myself, I can perhaps provide some insight into the eggs-and-baked-goods dilemma. Assuming that the Redwallers have access to flax seeds (which they probably do, given the fact that they also have linen), then a mix of flax seed meal and water can actually be used a substitute for eggs in most baking recipes. I've tried it myself in cake and cupcakes, and it works quite well. If not flax seeds specifically, then I wouldn't be surprised if the Redwallers have some other similar trick that they use.

It was in those muffins, at least. They turned out more like very dry scones.  :P

That's really interesting about flaxseed! Chemistry is so great!
